Before I was a professional triathlete, I was …. A kid! I’ve been a professional triathlete since I was 14 years old.
Describe your introduction to triathlon: I did my first triathlon in Clarington, Ontario with some friends on my swim team. I crashed badly dismounting my super awesome mountain bike, but I finished the race and came in fifth.
Who has influenced your triathlon career the most/and how? – Barrie Shepley because he found me racing Kids of Steel races in Ontario when I was 13 and introduced me to ITU races. While living in Ontario, Eon D’Ornellas and Aubrey Bryce taught me how to ride my bike and ride it fast. Lorene Hatelt was my mentor and helped guide me through my teen years while being a professional triathlete. My husband Jarrod Shoemaker; I planned on retiring the year I met him and he showed me how to enjoy myself and have fun in the sport while doing it professionally.
Which event do you most look forward to each year and why? The Clermont Draft Legal Challenge that Jarrod is the race director for and Sara McLarty’s annual open water swim.
What do you consider your biggest accomplishment as a triathlete? Placing second in the Life Time Fitness Triathlon Series in 2011.
Training partners: Jarrod Shoemaker, Sara McLarty, Sarah Haskins, Jen Tetrick, Sean Jefferson, Omar Nour, Nic Tutiva.
